Are you ready for Universal Credit?
Everyone of working age who receives Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, Housing Benefit, Working Tax Credit or Child Tax Credit will eventually move to Universal Credit.
Get in control
Universal Credit payments will be paid in monthly instalments so it's important to set up a budget to make sure you can meet important bills like rent and council tax.
Get a bank or building society account
If you don't have one already, you need to sign up to receive electronic payments with a bank, building society or credit union.
You must apply for, and manage, your Universal Credit online.
